This past year I began pre-ordering physical video games from publishers that require payment now and delivery later. Some folks are weary about that type of purchase generally, and specifically due to some publishers not giving updates or delivering product. While I’m hopeful about all of the publishers I’ve purchased from I remain cautiously optimistic. I have since received one of my orders (Space Moth/Star Hunter DX) and anxiously wait for the others to arrive, checking their respective websites for updates.
The game on my mind now is Demon Throttle! This game reminds me of Pocky and Rocky in the ‘walk and gun’ aspect and has a visual NES vibe. This is being published by Special Reserve Games and will never release digitally. SRG opened preorders for a window of time and later opened a second chance preorder in April. I’ve done my best to spread the good word about Demon Throttle because it looks too good to miss!
On the SRG website, it states the estimated shipping date is summer 2022. Before you go googling “when does summer start” like I did: it’s June 21st. Due to the site saying “summer” they will have until September 22nd to ship Demon Throttle, unfortunately. I am incredibly excited to play some couch co-op with this game and hope it ships in June! Special Reserves Games has a discord and specific channel for Demon Throttle for fans to chat about this upcoming release.
You can catch me there shouting “Or somethin’!” which is a tag line from this awesome looking game. Until this release, enjoy the trailer below. Anyone else out there pre-order Demon Throttle?
“DEMON THROTTLE tells the story of a beautiful vampiress and dusty gunslinger on a quest for vengeance against a demon that stole her mystical chalices and slept with his estranged wife. Now the two unlikely companions must blast their way through four monstrous generals and their wicked domains to lift the demon’s curse and exact their revenge.” –
